Are you planning to start your own self-published magazine or newspaper? Unless you want to write it all by yourself or you plan to hire a full-time writing staff (which might be a heavy strain on your budget when you’re just starting out), you will need to consider carefully the best strategy to get content for your publication, and where to place a call for submissions for finding writers.
If you have finally created your masterpiece and have printed a set of copies using a quality self-publishing company, such as Dazzle Printing, then you are ready to start “stirring the pot” in the community, i.e., catching the attention of the locals via magazine distribution. You have probably come to realize that it takes a great deal of creativity, ingenuity, and perseverance to circulate one of your publications around the community.

However, if you start small and plan carefully, you might get not only a return on your investment, but also the sense of fulfillment that comes with bringing something new into the world.
